How do I have to format a sd card which I use in a Minix Neo X8-H? In XBMCTorrent I want to make a downloadpath on sd card. But I've tried fat32, ntsf, ext4, but I always get a message, can,t write to sd card. (Sorry for my English)
Is there any way to write to a sd card in XBMCTorrent?

I've been having a strange behavior, maybe someone can help. When I click a torrent (any location) it stays for like 5-10 min in downloading metadata with 0 seeds and 0 peers. Then all of a sudden it gets tons of peers and seeds and starts downloading very fast and playing. I have a 50mb connection, no ISP blocks, and the same torrent on utorrent starts right away. Any ideas? Thanks

Hi, I installed XBMCTorrent and have been really liking it so far. But it is a bit a hassle to go through different sources, and then choose a letter....

Is there a way to configure XBMCTorrent so that it has a skin like PopcornTime and that the files are always sorted on popularity... (basically exactly as in Popcorn Time)?

Thanks anyway for the great addon!

It depends on the torrent site. This is why, for the most part, I use private trackers. This addon uses public trackers and many of those are tracked, especially HBO content.

I like the idea behind XBMCtorrent but the Library integration kinda sucked in my opinion. I wanted a way to automatically add the results of searches to my library, did some searching but nothing quite did what I wanted it to. So to fill that hole I created a set of bash scripts to connect to Public Trackers and create .strm files from the magnet links it finds.

This is the first time I have felt what I have coded is useful and robust enough to actually release, so I created a repo on github and posted my scripts there.

Announcing Torrentscrape for XBMCtorrent, it can be obtained from:

https://github.com/Sparhawk76/torrentscrape

Hope this comes in handy to someone, if you really like it feel free to shoot me some bitcoin at 1F3mtKyeHWyUwUBN8ckkSozcemVXFaSLMp
